We’re sure you’re all asking… Why the change to MMS Autosport?

We’re sure you’re all asking… Why the change to MMS Autosport?

MINI Motoring Solutions was created circa 2010, during Mark's previous life working at a dealership. He used this name when offering consultation and diagnostic services to shops, dealers and private customers. In 2015 when he opened his first automotive repair shop, it made sense to stick with the name. He had built a strong business foundation with it (and its shorter form, MMS), and had gained a large following within the MINI enthusiast community in southern California. Two years later the momentum here at MMS has only increased, and we plan on becoming a leader in the performance suspension industry. While MINI Motoring Solutions has served us well, we knew we had to make a change in our brand to continue our growth. We needed a name that encompassed all we do here, such as our work in R&D, our manufacturing programs, and our performance and repair work on makes and models other than MINI Coo ... read more

MINI Service Intervals: How often should I change my oil?

MINI Service Intervals: How often should I change my oil?

It's that time of year again when everyone is traveling for the holidays, and MMS wants to make sure you arrive safely to the celebration without any mechanical bumps along the way. And in the holiday spirit, we're extending today's PSA to BMW owners because, you know - we're family. How often should I change my oil? Its a question we hear every day at MMS. MINI actually shares similar service intervals with BMWs, and although both brands have a suggested service interval, we chose to go by our own. We're rebels without a cause over here. BMW/MINI says you can go 15,000 miles in between oil services, but after having countless valve covers off on both MINIs and BMWs, we can tell you that their oil service interval is too long. We like to keep the oil service interval between 5,000 and 6,000 miles for two simple reasons: #1. These cars burn oil! Its unfortunate but it's a fact of life. According to ... read more

Corner Balancing: The Art Of The Set Up

Here at MMS we are all about peak performance and doing everything in our power to make your MINI handle better than you ever thought possible. We all know that a good alignment drastically increases your MINI's handling characteristics, and that throwing on a set of coilovers, rear sway bar, and sport tires skyrockets the performance of your MINI. But most MINI owners don't touch those coilovers once they are installed. Although your MINI may handle better than it did before, you could be leaving a ton of performance on the table! So how can we reach even higher levels of performance? One method we recommend is getting a corner balance performed on your car. Having a professionally set up suspension can decrease lap times, increase “turn in” response, and provide the driver with more confidence while driving at the limit. There are some huge misconceptions in what corner balancing is and how it affects the handling of a car. Many people think that the balanc ... read more
